Make a Wish

Hey friends!!! Welcome back to my little corner of the blog-o-sphere!  So, today I have a fun little card using a slightly different design!
This "Peek through" card measures 5.5" x 4.25" and features Mo Manning's "Make a Wish" digi image available HERE in Mo's online store. I made this card for my beautiful daughter who I see only a couple of times a year. But now, with the Covid "situation," I don't know when I'll get to fly out to AZ to spend time with her. So, I thought I'd send her a little love via snail mail!

Here's a slightly side-ish view . . .

Bye Bye

Graduation from High School is a big deal! Soooo . . . today I have a fun little graduation card to share with you.

Another Tilda

Hello again!! I've got another Z-fold card to share with you. I'm loving these smaller cards . . . so much simpler to mail! This is another card made with sweet little Tilda from Magnolia stamps!! I used Distress Inks for this cutie! I'm really enjoying painting with DIs lately . . . it's so relaxing!
Card Recipe:
Image stamped onto Stonehenge 100% cotton paper
Almost Amethyst Cardstock: Stampin' Up
DPs: Morning Whispers by The Paper Boutique
Dies & pearls: My stash
Inside sentiment stamp: Stampin' Up
Tim Holtz Distress Inks

A peek at the card opened up . . .

I've decided to enter this cutie into the "As You Like It" Challenge where the theme is . . .  Digi or Rubber and why. I actually like them both!! Digi images are so convenient to use and store . . . but when I paint with Distress Inks, I prefer rubber stamping. For this one, I used a rubber stamp!

And that's it for me today!! Thanks (in advance) for visiting and for your sweet comments! Hugs . . .
